That was like dating 16 years old instead of 25. Never read about more immature heroine.
I had a hard time rating this book a two or three stars. In a way I could even give it four.

I love cowboys, and I really liked the premise of the book.

What I didn't like was:

The way everyone treated Libby child-like. It was annoying.

The five hundred "pet names" Aron made up for her. I can deal with those really but when you call your lover "munchkin" or "lilbit" it felt like he was talking to a kid. Not to mention Libby-poo, Libby-bell, Libby-lou, Baby, Babydoll, Sweetheart. I started getting

I saw this series had high ratings and hoped for a second cowboy erotica to enjoy. No such luck. Sable Hunter is no Lorelei James.

The story is just a rickety frame for a bunch of sex. Some might think that's what erotica is, but I think many of us have a different expectation ... because we've seen better. The sex scenes don't even cut it. There's no real engagement in the interludes, maybe because they're filled with so much purple prose you don't even want to read them. So the story is unlika

This is possibly the worst "Erotica" I've ever read. And that is saying something. ****Spoilers and quotes ahead!***

Actual line "Aron, can I kiss your winkie?" yup.

"Freeing his enormous cock from his jeans, he gave it room to stretch and bob like a hungry python seeking a meal" You heard me. (Btw, his enormous cock is said to be eight inches long and FIVE inches wide.. not girth... just by looking at it.. she can see five inches wide FYI)

Well I have to admit this book was hot!!! Normally him saying this is just sex and don't read anything into this would have me saying HELL NO, instead I was saying HELL YEAH! Lol. Love it. She was such a strong determined lady and so fearless! I just admired her so much. And he was the total package! Faithful loyal a family man who had been hurt by his cold hearted ex wife. He deserved the heroine. He had not had sex in over 4 years because his wife disgusted him not because he was still in love ...more

Sweet and Hot!

I liked this one.. it was a sweet easy read. At times, it was really over the top sweet and I developed several toothaches throughout the story but I expected this going in so it didn't bother me. I'm in the mood for that right now after reading some gritty, angsty, intense books lately. I enjoy something like this series occasionally that's just fun to read. The fact that it had PLENTY of VERY hot scenes was just icing on the cake.

We've got sexy cowboy Aron..he's the oldest

Meet the McCoy brothers:

Aron – the boss
Jacob – the compassionate one
Joseph – the daredevil
Noah – the businessman
Isaac – the bad boy
Nathan – the "baby"

After the death of their parents, Aron McCoy stepped up and held the family together. Along with his brothers, he runs the family ranch and their holdings. Bitter over his failed marriage has made him swear off women, vowing never to marry again.

Very romantic, very sweet and Super hot. Loved the secondary characters and really loved the heroine so much. Her bubbly quirky attitude was a refreshing change. Innocent and brave is something I love. So many parts of this book I highlighted. I laughed out loud and I burst of tears. That shows me that I just might have found an author to stalk.. (wink)
I am sad I have to skip book 3. I really wanted Josephs book but can't read about him with other women. Oh well there are lots more. Diving in s

Cowboy Heat (Hell Yeah #1) by Sable Hunter was free but is now $4.99. I think the price is too high for a straight up yeehaw cowboy erotica, but if you like purple prose, alpha cowboy loving with an the innocent but willing heroine who’s favorite catch phrase is- “Ceez-n-Crackers!”, it might just be the story you’re looking for.

Libby is in remission from her cancer that could come back at anytime. Because Libby has been so sick, she has never been in a romantic relationship, kissed a man or had

I am rating this a 4.5 for a highly enjoyable read.
I wanted a read that was high on romance,light in tone,funny,a little angst,and of course sme scorching hot sex scenes.Cowboy Heat delivered on all counts ,the " cheese " factor was pretty high too lol!!! Sable Hunter,you have a new fan in this romance reader.

What can I say? Sometimes a light, easy read with great characters and a good story is just what you need.

Unfortunately, I would have rated this story higher if not for the rather cheesy dialogue.

Aron is well.. perfect. Tall, handsome, wealthy, uh... a cowboy *drool*.

..and Libby is just a sweetheart! Loved everything about her.

Good story, great characters, hotter-than-hell sex, uber-dominant male lead, and great girl trying to find her happily-ever-after...DONE!

I’m always on the lookout for cheap, fun and short erotica, and this one caught my eye because it was free, it had decent ratings here and on Amazon, and the blurb was well-written.

I don't think other reviewers were reading the same book I was. I hate it when that happens.

The premise actually might have worked; the set-up in the first few pages was amusing enough to keep me reading. But once Libby and Aron got their eyes and hands on each other, it quickly went

I wondered how to start this review and then it came to me, I would speak about the quirky catchphrases Libby uses throughout the story. Example: Cheez-n-Crackers. My first impression was "Who speaks like this in real life?" Then after I yelled out "Hot Dog" to my husband, I realize I do. As for using words like "winkie", it may not be sexy or romantic but it wasn't supposed to be used in that context. I found myself laughing and again when Aron yelled back "He did not have a winkie."

Super duper sweet romance, with LOTS of sexy scenes. There is a "sweeter version" that has less sex. I am glad I got the "erotic" version. The sex was great, the dialogue...just ok. So I would not have wanted less of the good part!

This book is about the easiest book you'll ever read. Low/no angst, lots of hot and fun sex, big burly hot cowboys. Not a manwhore (view spoiler), no cheating or OW drama

I read this very quickly off of my Kindle last night.(I was looking for another book and saw this one...not to mention it was a free book.) It has romance, humor and realistic life situations...not to mention Cowboys.

Libby...aka...Liberty Bell is such a selfless young lady, who despite her odds, and dealing with Cancer for the better part of her young life seems to be such an optimistic person and so giving. I love the immediate spark that takes place between her and Aron. He has been the liter

Enjoyed this one ...A relatively quick, easy read with a decent story and steamy passion.
Looking forward to getting to know the other McCoy Brothers. Jacob in particular. His story is next in this series I believe.

Popping my cowboy cherry was a pleasure.

Cute, cavity inducing, schmaltzy romance between an adorkable Mary Sue virgin w/ health issues and a grumpy, cynical divorced Texas cowboy in Central Texas. Yeehaw!

Lots of brothers.
Lots of sex.
Sex in hammock. Sex on the desk. Sex on the table. Sex on the sewing table. Sex in the lake.

No gross action with brothers, thank God.
Hell yeah, I will read about the brothers as well. Ha.

This was a good book. It was entertaining. But man was it over the top cheesy. The pet names, it became annoying at times. But I did like the story line. Aron was a sexy cowboy that was the eldest MacCoys. Libby was very sweet and innocent. They hooked up within hours of meeting and fell in love right away. Overall this was a sweet, sexy book with annoying cheesiness at times.

I really enjoyed this book. The story pulled me in, and pulled at my heart. Part of the story was emotional, and the other part was pure heated romance between Libby, and Aron. No one is promised tomorrow, and sometimes Miracles happen. Each day is a gift, It's up to us on how we use each day.

Libby has been battling Leukemia for years. She has never been kissed, and has never had a boyfriend. Libby does read lots of books. All of her experience in the love department is knowledge she has gained

There is a Chinese proverb that says, and I quote: To Read a Book the first time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend. To read it for a second time is to meet an old one.

The first version of Cowboy Heat was my introduction to Ms Sable Hunter's writing and work. I still remember that I wanted to start with the first book of the series and then move on from there.

And I haven't looked back. It is still heart-warmingly beautiful.

She is a strong female character who likes to please others. With her history, she is trying to live her life to the fullest, including wanting to try dangerous things.

Cowboy Heat is the first book in the Hell Yeah! series by Sable Hunter. I have very mixed emotions on this book. I loved the characters and the storyline was pretty darned near perfect. As a matter of fact, it probably would’ve been a 5 for me if it wasn’t for some very cheesy scenes. Don’t get me wrong, some of the sex scenes were so hot and I would find myself really enjoying them and then some of the craziest words and phrases were used.
